Class, College, and Courtship: Why the next generation of Quiverfull will probably be poorer than their parents

by The Graduate I think that part of the reason that our family was never really considered true homeschoolers by some of our peers is because we had money.  My dad is a brilliant businessman, and his success certainly did drive a wedge between us and our peers, and we were always viewed as different.  It is true that we did the same things to save money that other homeschool families did, but we did them as our hobbies, not out of necessity.  We never struggled with making the mortgage or worried about our cars breaking down. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Bible Helps PTSD?

by Kenneth Copeland and David Barton on the Believers Voice of Victory television show (clip of show at link)  - Veterans should not suffer from PTSD On Veteran’s Day, the two decided that they would “help” with the problem of PTSD on the Believer’s Voice of Victory program. How? By citing the Bible, of course. Because every American in the military is an evangelical Christian — or should be, they think — so this passage from Numbers, Chapter 32 should erase the problem altogether: … [Read more...]

by Bill Gothard of ATI from his site billgothard.com - Conquering Temptations: Looking at "Forbidden Fruit" "Forbidden fruit" appeals to the lusts of our flesh, the lusts of our eyes, or the pride of life.

Quoting Quiverfull: Sincere Repentance?

by Doug Phillips of Vision Forum - True Repentance But repentance must be sincere. It must spring from “godly sorrow.” Too often “repentance” is the experience of offering a half-hearted and self-serving apology to God and man, mixed with large amounts of blame-shifting, pride, and a desire to be done with the whole matter so you don’t ever have to deal with it again. It is the “I have said I am sorry on my terms and in my way, and there is nothing more I need to do, so if that is not good enough for you, then you are the one in sin” attitude. … [Read more...]

Ladies Against Feminism used her writing without giving her credit or even looking to see if the rest of the article conforms with their beliefs. Perfect example of LAF cherry picking to support their issues. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Under State Authority?

by Cindy from Get Along Home - You Want a Christian Nation? Christian public school parents, your children are not under your authority. If you think they are, try walking into their classrooms unannounced and directing them to do jumping-jacks all the way out the door to the car. Not only would you be escorted from the premises for disrupting class, your child herself would look at you as if you were insane, and then she would disobey you. Instead, she’d look to her teacher to get her out of this crazy situation. … [Read more...]
